In tandem with its Newfront presentation, NBCUniversal streaming platform Peacock has revealed it will be the next-day-after-broadcast streaming home for such series as Watch What Happens Live, Below Deck and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Previously, Disney-owned streamer Hulu had next-day streaming rights to such Bravo series, and there had been a delay between episode debuts on the linear network and on Peacock. But as of today (May 2), premium Peacock subscribers will be able to access episodes of current series the day after their linear debuts. In addition to the aforementioned series, programs include Summer House, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Top Chef, Kandi and the Gang and The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
By September, every Bravo series will be available to stream on Bravo the next day. NBCUniversal Entertainment Networks chairman Frances Berwick said next-day availability for Peacock episodes will expand Bravo’s reach to a new audience, while satisfying their current fanbase.
“Bravo viewers are some of the most loyal fans across television, and by making our shows accessible to this new demographic we’re growing that highly engaged audience which ultimately brings more value to the Bravo brand across all our platforms,” Berwick said.
Peacock already has a Bravo-branded hub featuring the Peacock originals The Real Housewives of Miami, The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip and Below Deck Down Under, among other content.
